I HOPE THIS MAY HELP.MY FATHER WAS JOHN DEJARNETTE (DEJOURNETTE,MY MOTHER MISSPELLED HIS MIDDLE NAME)DEVAN B.AUG.1897 IN ARLINGTON,WILCOX COUNTY,AL.D.MARCH,1958.I WAS BORN AUG.1955,MY MOTHER WAS HIS 2ND MARRIAGE.HIS FATHER BENJAMIN EUGENE DEVAN B.OCT.1848 D.OCT.1908 HAD HIM BY HIS 2ND MARRIAGE(FANNIE J.PEARL)MY GRANDFATHER B.1848 HAD ALOT OF CHILDREN BY BOTH UNIONS.THERE WAS BENJAMIN,EUGENE,GOLSON, LELIA, JOHN DEJARNETTE(MY FATHER)CARRIE A.,FLAVIA,WILLIAM,JAMES,NELLIE,AND SOME OTHERS I JUST CANT THINK OF ALL THERE NAMES.MY FATHERS GRANDFATHER WAS BENJAMIN EUGENE DEVAN B.JAN.6,1812 D.SEPT.25,1898 HE WAS MARRIED (MARY ANN DEJARNETTE WATKINS) THEY HAD JOHN,BENJAMIN EUGENE B.1848(MY GRANDFATHER)PHOEBE H.,ELLA,WILLIAM B.1853,MARY F.DEVAN,CALVIN W.,LEILA,FANNIE.
THEY WERE ALL RAISED IN ARLINGTON,WILCOX COUNTY,AL.WE HAVE A FAMILY CEMETERY THAT I GO TO SOMETIMES AT HE EDGE OF WHAT USE TO BE THEIR LAND. MY AUNT CARRIE(B.MAY 1895 D.1994) SOLD IT DURING THE DEPRESSION SHE USE TO TELL ME STORIES ABOUT MY GRANDPARENTS.THE 1ST SET OF CHILDREN MOVED MOSTLY TO MOBILE IN THE LATER 1800'S.SHE USE TO VISIT HER HALF SIBLINGS THERE ALOT AND SHE LIVED WITH HER BROTHER GOLSON WHILE IN SCHOOL.THERE ARE ALOT OF OUR FAMILY BURIED IN ARLINGTON,WILCOX COUNTY,AL METHODIST CHURCH CEMETERY AND THE DEVAN CEMETERY IS WHERE MY GGRANDPARENTS ARE BURIED, BENJAMIN EUGENE DEVAN (B.1812 D.1898)MARY ANN.THIS CEMETERY IS HARD TO FIND IF YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN THERE BEFORE.THER MIGHT BE A WILLIAM IN THERE.
I PLAN TO GO UP SOON.I LIVE ON THE GULF COAST.I WILL SEE WHO IS BURIED IN THE FAMILY CEMETERY NEXT TIME I GO.THIS CEMETERY IS RUINS,HARDER TO READ GRAVES EVERYTIME I GO UP.SOME OF THE MONUMENTS ARE BROKEN ALSO.
